EMAR is designed to provide a diverse group of emerging and established artists an immersive, supportive, productive and communal atmosphere for art making and dialogue on a bucolic 77-acre farm in Washington County (1.25 hours North of Troy, NY). The summer residency is offered for 5 weeks from June 28 – August 1, with 2 and 4 week stays for individual artists and 1 week stays for families. The residency program aims to create opportunities for artists to take risks and develop new contemporary works across many art forms, primarily visual and literary arts, while engaging in meaningful dialogue with fellow residents and arts professionals. Our goal is to create a residency program that responds to the critical needs of emerging artists and artists as parents, while striving to build a program that reflects the rich cultural environment of today through an active commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion. Since its inception, creating an environment that stands out as a safe space for creative risk taking, personal growth and respite has been a core goal of the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency. Elizabeth Murray believed that each person deserves an opportunity to make their art and for their art to be visible on equal platforms. With that in mind our goal is to provide space and access for all, regardless of differences of race, age, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, national origin, migratory status, disability/abilities, political affiliation, veteran status and/or socioeconomic background.

Fused Glass Workshop with Jeep Johnson

Fused Glass Workshop
Feb 1st 2nd and 4th

Learn the basics of glass cutting, fusing (combining colors and shapes) and slumping, which gives the glass a shape. You will have the opportunity to make 2 dishes as well as a couple of necklaces.  It’is great fun and very easy and rewarding for beginners, so please don’t worry about your skill level.

 

We will work Saturday February 1st from 10:00am – 4:00pm. Our goal is to get the glass in the kiln by around 3:00. The glass “cooks” in the kiln for 24 hours, so we come back on Sunday at 4:00  to clean up the pieces and send them back into the kiln to be shaped, which takes another 24 hours.
We will have work pickup on Tuesday February 4th @ 6:00pm.  The pickup will involve discussion, questions and review of your pieces. 

The cost of the class is $175.00 and is limited to 6 people. Reservations are established in the order I receive them. Please call, text or email to make reservations, payments need to follow shortly after, via check, Venmo or Paypal. In the event you are unable to make the class I will issue a credit for another class. There are no refunds, 

I will also be giving classes in the spring and summer and if you have some friends that want to do it together let me know the dates and we can build the classes around your group. 

Fused Glass Workshop:$175.00
Saturday Feb 1, 10:00am – 4:00pm – In the kiln
Sunday   Feb 2,  4:00pm – 5:30pm – Back in the kiln
